Join us. We need you. They need you.
Volunteers come from all walks of life.
They are nurses, PA's, homemakers, career women, black, white, hispanic, old, and young. Their common interest is in the victims we serve. Some have been victims of sexual assault themselves. Some have had a family member or a close friend who has been a victim.
We are often the first responders to victims at the hospital and may be the first person they reveal their past to on the Crisis Line. Either way, after being trained, our volunteers are anxious to help those in need. They are well trained on Rape Trauma and what a victim may look or sound like.
It is comforting for the victim to hear us say,
"I am sorry this happened to you. I believe you."
You can be there for the victim of rape or sexual assault at her lowest point. You can be a beacon of hope, so that with aid and support, she can re-organize her life and begin her healing.
Serve directly on the crisis line, giving support and information to victims and their families. The crisis line is a 24 hours/ 7 days a week service.
Be on call to assist in the emergency room when a sexual assault survivor needs the support the Rape Crisis Center offers.
Become a sexual assault advocate/crisis intervention volunteer at the Rape Crisis Center! Volunteers support victims of sexual assault through the 24 hour crisis line and hospital response.
